Pain is an unpleasant emotional and sensory experience.

Pain is also experienced by people differently. One thing we can all agree with though is that pain is real, and it’s physical. What the brain perceives can be modifiable by what we feel – meaning, people who are fearful of pain, anxious, or depressed, may experience pain in different ways, and sometimes more severely, will feel pain but isn’t actually experiencing other involved emotions.

So how does Orlando pain relief and management work, and how does it affect the mind and body?

It involves medication and therapy.

You have to address both the physical and emotional sides of pain. So while chronic pain medication serves its purpose well, it’s not the cure all.

There are a lot of pain medication a person can be prescribed with to ease their suffering. Same with therapy. And therapy is arguable better than medication as it solves pain both emotionally and physically. A lot of good pain therapies are a mixture of both physical and psychological treatment.

Physical therapy is an integral part of any pain management program as pain can be worsened by exercise that isn’t administered correctly (or misinterpreted as pain rather than fatigue or an overuse), and a physical therapist can design the most suitable exercise program for you. Your tolerance and pain reduction gradually improves through proper exercise.

On the other hand, there’s what we call cognitive-behavioral therapy which allows people to learn and have a better understanding of what causes their pain and what the things they can do about it. This therapy is truly about understanding the role pain plays in your own individual life and what it also means for you.

On top of these main pain relief, management and treatment options, there are also other variety of approaches and modalities you can add on to them to better deal with both the physical and emotional parts of pain such as visual imagery, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy, massage, relaxation techniques, heat and cold therapy, meditation, and/or biofeedback. Visit to read more about this.
